Abstract: The last fifty years have seen the development of a large number of application of the theory of wave propagation in solids to problems of interest to civil engineers. Most notable have been methods that make it possible to reduce the destructive effects of strong earthquake motions on buildings, power plants, pipelines, bridges, and vital services.
